“Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit. Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know, and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered to do all these abominations’?” (Jeremiah 7:8-10 NKJV). The Jews thought once they were saved, they were always saved, as some preach today. But, “the carnal mind is enmity against God” (Romans 8:7NKJV). Solomon wrote: “Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw near to hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil” (Ecclesiastes 5:1 NKJV). Our lives and worship should be God’s way. “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD” (Proverbs 15:8 NKJV).
